Hulu and Viacom have decided to stick together. The companies announced today that they’ve renewed and expanded their content partnership, offering Hulu subscribers even more content from the likes of Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, and MTV, including popular shows like Inside Amy Schumer that aren’t available for streaming anywhere else.

The multiyear deal continues to grant Hulu subscription video on-demand rights to select shows from Viacom’s media networks, adding exclusive rights to series including Broad CityFinding Carter, and more. Thanks to the deal, Hulu subscribers (who pay either $7.99 a month or $11.99 monthly for commercial free streaming) are able to watch episodes of current seasons on delay after linear broadcasts have aired.

In addition to current seasons, Hulu also has an extensive library of past seasons of numerous Viacom shows. As a result of the expanded deal, the number of full seasons has grown substantially. Hulu will now boast a larger collection of past seasons of WorkaholicsAwkwardCatfish: The TV Show, and others.

Kids content was a major part of the deal as well. The streamer was able to lock down a host of Nickelodeon shows, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesRabbids InvasionSanjay and Craig, and more. For nostalgic older fans, there are plenty of fun new options as well. Doug and Rugrats, among others, will be available for streaming for the first time on Hulu.

“Today, we are not only extending our deal, but we are adding more premium content than ever from their popular family of networks,” said Mike Hopkins, CEO of Hulu, in a press release.

Hulu’s latest additions and expansions appeal to a wide variety of viewers, which presumably will make the streaming service more attractive to new and current subscribers alike.
